(NASHVILLE, TN) – Stoney Creek Records’ Parmalee stormed out of the gate today with new single “Already Callin’ You Mine.” The follow-up to the band’s recent Top 3 hit, “Close Your Eyes” debuted with 48 first week reporting stations— the band’s highest first week add total at U.S. Country radio to date.
With an undeniably catchy, up-tempo hook, “Already Callin’ You Mine” tells the universal story of young love that falls hard and fast.
“It’s a song about that crucial moment when you change your Facebook status from ‘single’ to ‘in a relationship. It’s a total game changer,” describes Matt Thomas, lead singer for Parmalee.
Today, People Country got in on the action, revealing four new “Parmalee-fied” Facebook relationship status options – one for each member of the ‘band of brothers’ who won over the hearts of Country music fans with the multi-week chart topper “Carolina.” Find out who’s “In The Doghouse” and who’s “Pharrelled” in the candid feature that also premieres the lyric video for “Already Callin’ You Mine” here: http://smarturl.it/PeopleACYMLyricVideo
Co-penned by Parmalee lead singer Matt Thomas and bass player Barry Knox (alongside hit songwriters Phil O’Donnell and Wade Kirby), “Already Callin’ You Mine” is winning over fans and critics alike. USA Today highlighted the song as one of the best from Parmalee’s debut album, FEELS LIKE CAROLINA, while Billboard called the song “a buoyant hit-to-be.”
In a recent artist profile on Parmalee, The Huffington Post declared the new single “has the same catchy beat their music has become known for, with lyrics that make you feel like they’re talking directly to you.”

Stoney Creek Records’ Parmalee is a family band comprised of brothers Matt and Scott Thomas (lead vocals/guitar and drums, respectively), cousin Barry Knox (bass) and life-long best friend Josh McSwain (guitar). Influenced by such musical heavyweights as the Allman Brothers, Travis Tritt and Bob Seger, the band’s name is derived from the small town of Parmele, NC (population 262), which is home to a small tin-roofed barn dubbed Studio B where the band practiced on every given evening.
In 2013, Parmalee dominated the country radio charts with the multi-week #1, GOLD-selling single “Carolina” which made history in 2013 as being the longest #1 trek by a vocal duo or group in the Billboard Country Airplay chart’s 24-year history. “Carolina” was also voted #1 by fans on SiriusXM The Highway’s “Hot 30 LIVE” countdown. Parmalee’s Top 40 debut country radio single, “Musta Had A Good Time” was voted #1 by fans for four consecutive weeks on SiriusXM The Highway¹s “Hot 30 LIVE” and its video reached #1 on CMT’s PURE 12-Pack Countdown. The song has appeared on nationally broadcast sporting events from the NFL to the PGA and the MLB. Parmalee recently earned its second consecutive Top 3 hit with its latest single, “Close Your Eyes.” All three hits appear on Parmalee’s debut album, FEELS LIKE CAROLINA.
In 2014, Parmalee earned a Teen Choice Award nomination for “Choice Country Group,” a semi-finalist nomination for ACM “New Artist of the Year” and was lauded one of “Country Music’s Breakout Stars Of 2014” by MSN Entertainment. Parmalee recently hit the road with Brad Paisley on his “ 2015 Country Nation World Tour.”
